Perennial Sage

USDA Zone: 3-9

(='Blaukoenigin') The Hybrid Sages are invaluable perennials for their rich display of spiky flowers in the early summer border. This selection is medium in size, with flowers of bright violet-blue. Remove faded blooms to encourage repeat flowering. Excellent for cutting. Drought tolerant once established. Also tolerates heat and humidity. Plants may be easily divided in early spring or fall. Can be clipped back hard after blooming, to rejuvenate the foliage. Attractive to both butterflies and hummingbirds.
